The Autumn 2013 edition of Food Ethics asks expert contributors including politicians, business leaders and food policy experts, what food and farming related issues are likely to come up in party manifestoes; what issues the main political parties should be addressing on the ‘stump’; and what might an ethical food manifesto look like?

The Spring 2013 edition of Food Ethics magazine examines the issue of choice along the food chain.
It’s easy to take choice for granted, but there are many whose choice is either restricted or non-existent. Farmed animals, the very young, future generations, those living in extreme poverty, and the planet we live on are all disproportionately affected by the choices others are free to make.
What we eat and whether it will prolong or shorten our lives is an age-old preoccupation. Scientists study the diets of the Japanese and Mediterranean peoples with interest. If they live to be centenarians, can’t we too?
Increasingly, it seems, we can. The global population is getting older – fast. But many people in the developed world don’t eat like the Japanese or Greek Islanders; modern food is often processed, high in saturated fats, full of red meat and lacking in fresh fruit and vegetables.
The Autumn 2012 edition of Food Ethics magazine investigates power and responsibility in the food system. Five years ago we published a magazine on ‘big retail’, which looked at whether supermarkets and food businesses could go green, healthy and fair. Since then the Groceries Code Adjudicator bill has been introduced in Parliament, progressive businesses have begun mainstreaming sustainable practices and consumers offered more buying choices.
